Happy Almost New Year!

I tend to measure the passage of time by school years rather than calendar years. I think many moms of school-aged (and maybe even preschool-aged) kids do the same. I even measured it this way when I worked in higher ed - the academic and fiscal years would begin within about a few weeks of one another.

As the new school year approaches, I'm thinking about washable markers, backpacks, and antibacterial gel. I'm preparing to pack lunches and snacks every day. I'm getting my new calendar in order: moving appointments from the old into the new, adding in our extra-curricular schedules, and thinking about opportunities for travel.

I am excited about the new school year.  While I have enjoyed the flexibility that summer offers, and for the first time I'm sad to see it end, I really do love the routine that comes with the return to school.

And maybe I'll have some time to get my desk in order.
